Today, I feel like staying in bed and streaming one of my very favorite fashion forward foreign films… so that is just what I am going to do. For those who do not understand the greatness that is Ms. Diana Ross, simply watch this 1975 film starring herself and Mr. Billy Dee. It is inspirational, romantic, and fly as hell! Mahogany (Diana’s character) is a young poor woman struggling to become a fashion designer. She eventually finds fame and popularity that could ruin her. Along the way she wears and creates some amazing fashions. Visually, this movie is a blessing to all eyes.
The best thing (to me) about the movie is that Diana designed all the costumes! The hair and makeup was done by Franco and Maria Teresa Corridoni. Although they’ve worked on many major films together, its unclear as to whether this foreign duo are relatives or spouses. Either way, their work has been featured in movies such as The Passion of the Christ, Seven Years in Tibet, and Jane Eyre.
